This Ancient glass piece is approximately 2,000 years old, dating back to the time of the Greek and the beginning of the Roman Empire. It was dug in today's Afghanistan which was known as the Bactrian Kingdom of North Central Asia during ancient times. The Bactrian Kingdom was one of the major trading centers of the Ancient World with Camel caravans carrying salt and spices to Europe. This brought incredible wealth into the world of the Bactrians who were centuries ahead of their time as a modern and innovative society, with accomplishments in industry, philosophy, human awareness and art.
